Man Involved With Ohio Corruption Case Released From YFPC

Joe O'Malley

It’s always fascinating to see who has spent time in the Yankton Federal Prison Camp.

This week, I came across a story about Joseph P. O’Malley, who served a four-month sentence for lying to the FBI during a Cuyahoga County, Ohio, corruption probe.

According to, it’s a pretty big case:

AKRON — As the jury deliberated Friday in the trial of former Cuyahoga County Commissioner Jimmy Dimora and county auditor employee Michael Gabor, one of the other defendants in the Cuyahoga County corruption probe walked out of federal prison.

Joseph P. O’Malley, attorney and former employee of Auditor Frank Russo, finished serving his four-month sentence in federal prison in Yankton, South Dakota.

O’Malley, 45, of Westlake, was sentenced for lying to FBI agents about Russo’s intervention in court cases that involved his clients.

He asked to serve his sentence in Yankton because he “feared for his safety” if put in Morgantown federal prison where nearly all of the other defendants were serving their sentences.

Court and prison records show that 14 other defendants are awaiting sentencing, eight have received probation at their sentencings, and four are awaiting future trials.
